Woodworking Manufacturing Month, an industry outreach program showcasing product and technology innovation and advancement across the wood products industry landscape, begins on Oct. 1

The program is produced by the International Woodworking Fair on behalf of its owners, the Woodworking Machinery Industry Association and Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America, for the benefit of the industry at large.

“Produced and staged under the banner Innovation At Work, Woodworking Manufacturing Month will celebrate woodworking industry vitality on two parallel tracks: A national awareness and outreach campaign operating in tandem with local grassroots programming initiated by participating manufacturers,” according to a statement from the IWF.

“Local efforts will involve businesses across the U.S. in a collective demonstration of woodworking as a source of innovation in production technology and materials development, and as a center for applying those advances to the development and production of innovative products used across a host of market segments, including building and construction, industrial infrastructure, consumer goods, and many other markets. Local participants will benefit from a full turn-key marketing and branding resource toolkit providing ready-to-deploy digital vehicles, program logos and graphics and other essential material. Equipped with these tools, participating businesses can choose to stage self-directed local events and promotions such as open houses, factory site visits and product innovation discovery days.”

All woodworking industry manufacturers and service providers are invited to participate in Woodworking Manufacturing Month by signing up here.
